Ramon Despuig, of the venerable language of Aragon, Bailiff of Majorca and Seneschal to the Grand Master, was elected to fill the magisterial dignity on the death of de Vilhena on 16th December 1736. His rule of just over four years presents no event of importance beyond the capture of several vessels of the Algerine navy, made by the galleys of the Order.

Gentle and mild in character, and an earnest lover of peace, Despuig died on the 15th January 1741, at the age of seventy-one years.
